"Spend less money to go to school."
Specialize after dental school and Spend as little money possible in education. Public schools or private school that offer you big scholarship is the way to go. The loans hanging over you after school is done can limit you tremendously especially if you want to open a practice. It can be daunting to take on another huge loan if you have student loans. Interest rates are not as good as they used to be.

"A stressful job. With facilities is interesting."
Pros: I can change my patients lives positively. Not only I can relieve their pain and make them feel more comfortable, but also I am capable of improving their quality of life. It's a pleasing feeling when you see your effect on people's faces.
Cons: In my country where the government doesn't surround a dentist with a suitable working environment, this profession is unbearable stressful one. The dentist has to fight to reach work place and fight to work with poor facilities. Finally, a dentist is not paid a good compensatory salary for all of these battles. Actually, it's a problem of a whole country not a problem of dentistry in this country. Thank you :)
Pros: I like being a doctor.. And serving people.
Cons: Routine is hectic due to two sessions of work.
"I love my job."
Pros: The best part of this job is the satisfaction which you get after completing a patient's work. The blessings you get after inserting a denture.. The gratitude and thankfulness a parent shows after getting their child treated.. The smile on a kids face when he leaves your clinic promising he will come up for next appointment because ur management skills worked.. It is the best..
Cons: Some self proclaimed dentists who act as patients..
